Stormwater Management for Land Development is a unique book on hydrologic and hydraulic methods for developing stormwater management plans that only requires readers to understand algebra, trigonometry, and geometry. Beginning with the fundamentals, it walks readers through the ABCs of fluid mechanics and hydrology and presents practical methods and designs to control stormwater runoff. Useful to surveyors, engineers, and land development planners who may not have taken fluid mechanics or hydrology courses, this book features: * Sections on elementary fluid mechanics including statics, dynamics, and open channel flow * Sections on practical stormwater hydrology including design rainfall, travel time, and runoff methods * Material on the NRCS/SCS dimensionless unit hydrograph, tabular hydrograph, and WinTR-55 hydrograph procedures. * Design methods for stormwater conveyance including storm sewer, culvert and open channel designs * A detailed procedure for designing a multiple-stage outlet structure for multiple event detention requirements * More than ninety example problems illustrating fluid flow and hydrology calculation methods * More than 170 review problems at the end the chapters With more than 150 helpful illustrations, STORMWATER MANAGEMENT FOR LAND DEVELOPMENT is a comprehensive yet basic guide to hydraulics, hydrology, and methods for the analysis and design related to quantity control of stormwater runoff. Thomas A. Seybert, PhD, PE, is Professor Emeritus of Engineering in the Surveying Engineering program at The Pennsylvania State University, Wilkes-Barre Campus. He has over thirty years of experience in teaching engineering students at the college level and also professional land surveyors, engineers and land development planners through continuing education courses at Penn State. He has also taught stormwater workshops for the Pennsylvania Society of Land Surveyors for over twenty five years.

The primary purpose of this manual is to provide guidance for site design which incorporates conservation into land development. The intent is to provide an incentive for land developers to retain and incorporate natural site features into the site development process and thereby reduce or eliminate the need for structurel stormwater management controls.

Stormwater Management for Smart Growth

Land development to support population increases and shifts requires changes to the hydrologic cycle. Increased impervious area results in greater volumes of runoff, higher flow velocities, and increased pollutant fluxes to local waterways. As we learn more about the negative impacts of these outcomes, it becomes more important to develop and manage land in a smart manner that reduces these impacts. This text provides the reader with background information on hydrology and water quality issues that are necessary to understand many of the environmental problems associated with land development and growth. The variability of runoff" flows and pollutant concentrations, however, makes the performance of simple technologies erratic and predicting and modeling their performance difficult. Chapters on statistics and modeling are included to provide the proper background and tools. The latter chapters of the text cover many of the different technologies that can be employed to address runoff flows and improve water quality. These chapters take a design approach with specific examples provided for many of the management practices. A number of methods are currently available for addressing the problems associated with stormwater runoff quality from urban areas; more continue to be developed as research is advanced and interest in this subject continues to surge. Traditionally, techniques for the improvement of runoff quality were borrowed applications from water and wastewater treatment, such as large sedimentation ponds Recently, increased interest has been placed on using natural systems to improve water quality.

Get the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to watershed analysis and management. In Watersheds: Processes, Assessment, and Management, author Paul DeBarry covers aspects of watershed physical processes such as assessing, classifying, and evaluating a watershed; using GIS models for watershed assessment; and effectively planning for future use and demands. He covers precipitation, ecology, geology, soils, geomorphology, hydrogeology, hydrology, water quality, hydraulics, GIS, data collection, planning, and management. And he takes you beyond theory so you learn to apply planning, management, GIS, and hydrologic engineering principles in real-world watershed management. This concise reference manual is ideal whether you're a scientist, biologist, geologist, engineer, planner, administrator, part of a citizens group, or a practitioner seeking to identify what is important in the watershed being studied.

Reorganized to enhance clarity and usefulness, Residential Land Development Practices, Third Edition presents proven techniques and tools for developing vacant land into buildable lots. Johnson draws on over 30 years of experience as an engineer, consultant, and lecturer to prepare an easy-to-use guide to basic concepts of land planning, subdivision design, and residential standards. He discusses practical aspects of real estate development, such as financing, scheduling, marketing, project approval, and permits. He completes the picture of a successful and sustainable development project by reviewing important issues connected with the bid process, project management, operations, and business practice. This third edition updates an ASCE Press classic with new illustrations, additional forms and checklists, and two entirely new chapters - one on types of residential land use and another on stormwater management and best management practices - ensuring that Residential Land Development Practices continues to be the best resource of its kind.
